OC MAN CAUGHT BY CONTINUING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CYBER MONITORING
Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato announced the arrest yesterday (6/28) of Gerald J. Moors, 20, of Beachwood on the charge of 3rd Degree Possession of Child Pornography. The Ocean County Prosecutor’s High Tech Crime Unit (HTCU), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Beachwood Police Department teamed up in this latest proactive operation to stop child exploitation.
The arrest is the result of a referral from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children through the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force indicating someone within Ocean County had downloaded images of prepubescent children engaged in sexual acts. HTCU detectives initiated an investigation, which led to a search warrant being executed by the partnering agencies at 134 Beachwood Blvd in Beachwood, NJ.
As a result of the evidence located, OCPO Assistant Prosecutor Kristin Pressman approved charges of 1 count of 3nd Degree Possession of Child Pornography. Moors was taken into custody and lodged in the Ocean County Jail pending a first appearance heading.
